Baroness Beret

Here it is! my new creation. Baroness Beret which I've found on Ravelry. It's a free pattern. I bought this yarn from this site. They have real shop in UK and I thought it is better for me to order from them since it's near.. I bought wool yarn which I got to know from Ravelry. It's call Malabrigo. It is super soft yarn from Uruguay. It is very easy to knit and since I've read many knitter using it I was very interested in it. So since the hat is small project and I am beginner of knitting I decided to take 1 skein to try. And here it is! I like the result. It was, in fact, very easy to knit and I like it very much.

I took this picture from Mac photobooth so it's not good quality photo.. anyway. I like it! :)

Grape Juice Scarf

It is a while I haven't written on my blog.. It has passed the summer vacation and already it's autumn. And I hear the footstep of the winter already. The time is passing certainly. No doubt.

One month ago I bought this beautiful yarn on Etsy. It was my small dream to buy a hand spun yarn and make something special. But I needed to practice before buying it. I did some project and get used to make some project and knitting. After some project I finally decided. I looked up on Etsy and found this lovely grape color yarn at Debland. It arrived after 2weeks and... voi là! I was so excited! I opened my little box and found grape color yarn.

I found this pattern on internet call Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks. I liked the title also the stitch she is using. It is perfect for my special project!

It took one week because I didn't want to mistake. Little by little at night on the couch with my cats around, I knitted, knitted knitted...

25 stitch and I knitted until it reach 60cm.

It turned out really nice. It keep me warm and I get many compliments!
I also like the square wooden button which I found at the hobby show where I went there with my friend. So at last, I made something special*:)

I've been to London for short weekend vacation! It's my first time visit. (exactly it was second time becuase i went there when I was one year old but since i don't remember at all i should say my first time :)) anyway, it was great! I liked very much London. Seems like Tokyo as atmosphere... It's kind of similar. Many people, tube, shops etc... Especially there were many Japanese sushi bar! Of course we went to eat there and also fish and chips, and curry! And also we visited many markets like Borough market, Portobello market, Whitecross street market and Spitalfields.. one market missed was Columbia Road market... It was near the hotel where we stayed but since the market was only on Sundays we didn't have time.. But I tried Bagel which was recommended in the guide book.. ^_^ And of course, there are many other markets all around london.. Anyway, it seems that we went to London just for eat... ^_^;; However in general I love market! Many fresh vegetable, food, clothes, strange odd things.. but still interesting because each market is specialized and you can see the everyday life of Londoners.. I think it is interesting also London bus tour but I would rather recommend market tour!

Croc walking on shiso

Where are you going buddy???
Happy Happy Monday!

Shiso returns!

So this year again. The shiso which I got from my friend last year, made new leaves. I mean, little seeds spread out in the planter and has growen everywhere! Even under the vase... Shiso is incredibly strong!!! ... and it became a little forest of Shiso! So, some of them I gave to my friends, some of them I made salad or cooked with chicken... but still, there are too much!!! I looked up on the internet and then I found a recipe. It is "Shiso Cordial". Simply it's shiso syrup. Good for summer to refresh!

Here the recipe:
100g of Shiso leaves
500cc Water
250g Sugar
2 full of spoon of Lemon juice

Boil water and put Shiso which is well cleaned.
Continue boiling for 10 minutes.
Divide leaves and liquid and add sugar.
Mixing them well until the sugar is well melting.
Add lemon juice.
Put in the bottle.
... and done!

New Croc, Rock!

I put these new Croc on my shop list!

Strawberry Icecream Baby Blanket

I started this project on... February I think. Little by little at evening before going bed, knitting and knitting and knitting... I couldn't decide the color so I went many times to the yarn shop to get various color of yarn. It was long way... The stitches I used is just simple, garter stitches. At the end I used binding tapes to finish up.
And 3months later.. Here it is!!
I liked how it turned out! I wish i had better skill to knit but i like knitting. This was simple project but since it was the first time that I made such a big blanket it was hard. The result is I am satisfied. It's just like strawberry icecream! yummy!!! I hope my friend and the baby will like it! ^_^
